Hydroelectric energy: clean energy from our mountains
Energy has been bubbling out of the mountains
of South Tyrol for thousands of years.
And we can use it for the future: from nature, for nature.
Hydroelectric energy is one of the most important sources of renewable energy. It has no negative effects on the climate, it is efficient, and particularly suited to South Tyrol, which, due to its mountain landscape and central position in the Alps is perfect for the exploitation of this source for the production of clean energy.
Alperia manages 41 hydroelectric power stations in South Tyrol, producing an average of some 4,500 GWh of clean energy every year. In this way, Alperia guarantees a supply of sustainable energy and at the same time, it is shaping future energy for South Tyrol.
By focusing on eco-friendly energy produced in hydroelectric power stations, it is possible to cut back production from thermal power plants, significantly reducing the carbon footprint.
Our hydroelectric power stations
Alperia manages 41 large and small hydroelectric power stations in South Tyrol, some in conjunction with local partners and municipalities. Most of the power stations are certified: they produce 100% green energy without producing CO2.
